Overview of the Wine
Mark Aubert’s Sonoma Coast vineyard-designate Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs have risen in popularity at a dizzying speed. Aubert’s career in winemaking began in 1989 at Peter Michael under the tutelage of Helen Turley, which led to his time at Colgin, Sloan, Futo and then Bryant Family, before founding Aubert Wines with his wife Teresa in 1999. His wines express the essence of singular terroirs with an effortless grace. Mark crafts the wines of Aubert to speak to a variety of wine lovers with one thing in common – selective palates that expect nothing but the best.

    Winemaker's Tasting Notes
    The 2017 CIX is divinely scented with aromas of bright Morello cherry, tart cranberry and subtle fragrant and floral lift. This is full-bodied Pinot with deliciously ripe tannins, a huge core of intense fruit and a wonderfully long finish.

    98 Points - James Suckling
    This is dense and focused with a very tight and compacted palate of blackberries, blueberries and smoke. Full-bodied and very flavorful. Structured and so beautiful. Quite muscular.

    95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    The medium ruby-purple colored 2017 Pinot Noir CIX Estate has beautiful red raspberries, cranberry pie and Bing cherries scents with nuances of lavender, dried herbs, red roses and tilled soil plus a touch of underbrush. The palate is full, firm and grainy with lovely ripe tannins and a great core of vibrant red fruit, finishing long and perfumed.

    95 Points - Vinous
    The 2017 Pinot Noir CIX Vineyard is a rich, sensual wine. Red cherry jam, blood orange, pomegranate, and rose petals all flesh out in this lush yet mid-weight, incredibly appealing Pinot Noir. The 2017 is succulent and juicy in style, and yet it also retains terrific freshness. There is so much to look forward to.

    92 Points - Wine Spectator
    A full-bodied style, with ripe dark plum and lively blueberry pie flavors that are flanked by tea and mocha hints. The chocolate- and cream-filled finish is lusciously spiced.
